Catalog Option

Transfer students have two options for determining the appropriate Longwood catalog to follow. You may select:

(1) the Catalog used by students who have earned the same number of credit hours you have earned


(2) the Catalog used by students entering Longwood the same academic year you are entering

You will need to notify the Registration Office if you select option (1). Otherwise it is assumed that you will follow the catalog for the academic year you enter Longwood.


Class Standing

The classification of a student depends on the number of semester hours earned:

  • Freshman - 24 or fewer semester hours of credit
  • Sophomore - 25-55 semester hours of credit
  • Junior - 56-88 semester hours of credit
  • Senior - 89 or more semester hours of credit.
